Here’s what happened in Week 8 of Centre County high school football:

Central Dauphin 34 vs State College 13 (final)

If you like defense, Friday’s game between State College and Central Dauphin was your ticket.

Both teams had the top defenses in the Mid Penn and at the end, it was the Rams’ defense that came up the biggest in a 34-13 victory.

Central Dauphin scored a pair of defensive touchdowns, three minutes apart, to blow open an otherwise tightly contested match, 27-13. In all, the Little Lions’ defense gave up 28-unanswered points in the final seven minutes of the game.

Offensively, State College quarterback Brady Dorner was knocked out of the game after tossing an interception to the Rams’ Malachi Bowman, who returned it 33 yards for a score.

Bald Eagle Area 36, Clearfield 28 (final)

Bald Eagle Area came home from Clearfield with a big win Friday night. The Bald Eagles erased 7-point halftime deficit to improve to 7-1 on the season.

Clearfield got on the board first thanks to a 1-yard TD run from QB Oliver Billotte with 7:21 to go in the first. Bald Eagle Area turned it over on the next drive. Billotte then connected with Matt Pallo on 4th and 20 to go up 14-0.

Jaden Jones found Matthew Reese on 4th and 11 with 54 seconds left in the first quarter. Carter Stere’s PAT was good.

Billotte scored again for Clearfield from 1 yard out with 7:57 left in the half. Jones then connected with Kaden Bittinger for a Bald Eagle Area TD. Bittinger then connected with Tommy Snyder for the 2-point conversion.

Another touchdown made four touchdowns on four drives for Clearfield, as Brett Zattoni punched one in.

Jones connected with Reese in the end zone, and the PAT was good. Clearfield lead 28-21 at the half.

BEA started off the second half fast, as Jones ran into the end zone from about 10 yards out to score on the Eagles’ opening drive. Stere’s PAT gave BEA its first lead of the night.

From there, it was all BEA’s defense.

BEA won a goal line stand with a Bittinger pick to hold the Bison and to hold onto the one-point lead going into the final quarter.

A big 47-yard run by Snyder put BEA up 36-28 with 6:58 left in the game.

Jones threw for 194 yards with three TDs, and had 14 carries for 65 yards and a TD on the ground.

Penns Valley 55 vs Bishop Carroll 12 (final)

Penns Valley put up 35 points on Bishop Carroll in the first half. The Rams added 20 more in the third, and gave up 12 in the fourth. Senior QB Aaron Tobias threw for 5 touchdowns in the win.

Bellefonte 54 vs. Central 7 (final)

The Red Raiders bounced back from last week’s loss to Penns Valley with a big win over Central to improve to 6-2. Bellefonte was led again by senior RB CJ Funk, who rushed for three touchdowns. The Red Raiders got off to a hot start, putting up 27 points in the first quarter. Bellefonte added another seven in the second. The Red Raiders and the Dragons traded a pair of touchdowns in the third, but 13 more points in the fourth gave Bellefonte the 54-7 win.

Philipsburg-Osceola 0 Huntingdon 56 (final)

Philipsburg-Osceola struggled to get anything going Friday night against Huntingdon, as they dropped to 1-7 on the season. The Bearcats lead P-O 42-0 at the half, while the Mounties have had 9 yards of total offense. Among Huntingdon’s first-half scores was a 5-yard TD run from QB Nick Troha, a 50-yard pass from Troha to Darin Harman, an 11-yard connection between Troha and Harman, and a 33-yard pass from Troha to Andrew Miller.
